Examination Information

Here you will find information on different topics related to examinations and the notification of grades.

Registration and cancelation

Registration for or cancelation of an examination is carried out directly in the module booking tool. Booking a module also automatically registers the student for the corresponding examination. Once the module booking deadline has passed, absolutely no further registrations or cancelations can be processed. Cancelations at a later date due to illness are only possible if a petition is submitted in due time, accompanied by a properly dated original doctor's attestation.


Attention: Students pursuing an external minor program must adhere to the regulations of the respective faculty.

Notification of grades / transcript of records

The grades for the individual examinations are officially announced with the electronic provision of the transcript of records at the start of the following semester. You will also receive an English translation thereof.

There is no right of access to grades before the official transcript of records has been provided electronically. Some examination results may be voluntarily published earlier by the chair responsible for the examination. You can view your grades in the module booking tool once they have been entered into the system. Grades may, however, still be downscaled until they have been officially validated by means of the electronic provision of the transcript of records.

English transcripts of records are not legally binding and only serve the purpose of interaction with higher education institutions that expect students to submit English documents. For any case of legal proceedings (e.g., appeals) the German version alone has legal validity.

Some module titles are displayed in German on the English translation of the transcript of records. If you need an English version for applications, you can translate the transcript by using the template provided at the bottom of this page. You can then send the filled in template to deansoffice so it can be signed and stamped.

Access to examination papers

Access to examination papers is organized directly by the module coordinator of the course. Please contact the coordinator about making appointments and procedures for access to examination papers.

Repeat examinations

Repeat examinations are modules that only offer the examination without the accompanying course, although the content of the examination is taken from the corresponding regular course.

There are no repeat examinations at the assessment level. A failed module cannot be rebooked until the following year.

All repeat examinations are published in the UZH course catalogue as a course for the corresponding module. They are only open to students who have failed the corresponding module in a previous semester or have cancelled it for certain reasons (e.g. due to illness). Repeat examinations are not booked via noted items & module booking, but can only be booked directly in the «My Modules» app under the «Repeat examinations» tab. Individual repeat examinations for individual students are not permitted.

Cheating on examination

In the event of examination fraud, in particular someone having access to prohibited resources, communicating with third parties without permission during an examination, submitting plagiarized material, not writing a seminar paper him- or herself, or fraudulently obtaining admission on the basis of incorrect or incomplete information, the examination is considered to have been failed and any assessments or transcripts awarded are to be declared null and void by decision of the Faculty Board.
